Oh, times they have changed greatly. Knitting is no longer just about sweaters and mufflers, it’s no longer even just about wool.
One may be tempted to ask why of all things knitting. I mean we do have just two, at best three months of winter here. No sooner do you air your woollens, that it’s time to shelve them again. There are also those deeply distressing memories of bulky, slightly shapeless hand-knit sweaters that were de riguer when we were growing up. You may ask if you really want to bring those back in fashion.
To all you doubters and naysayers, I say you’ve got it all wrong! Oh, times they have changed greatly from when we were kids – and here I refer to my generation i.e. the 80s kids. Knitting is no longer just about sweaters and mufflers – in fact, it’s no longer even just about wool. They call it YARN these days folks and it comes in all shapes and sizes. Think cotton, think silk – there is even such a thing as T-Shirt yarn. Hell, you even have the exotic-sounding PLARN which is nothing more than yarn made out of waste plastic bags. Not to say that wool has taken a backseat in any way. There are even more varieties available now – gorgeous wool-like mohair, alpaca, merino, angora – the list is endless.
And there are all sorts of things you can knit with that aforementioned yarn. Skirts, tees, knit tops, delicate lace shawls, hats, mittens, scarves, bracelets, boots, cushions, blankets, table runners, bags, clutches, rugs, you name it. There are hundreds of patterns and tutorials available on the internet to teach you whatever you want to make and any technique you want to learn.
In light of which, I say – ask not why knitting, ask why not knitting! It’s simple, creative, productive, engaging and best of all it can be done ONE KNIT AT A TIME!

Does Ranbir Kapoor expressing his preferences about Alia using lipstick really make him a toxic husband?
Sometime back, a video of Alia Bhatt with Vogue went viral where she shares her go-to make-up routine and her unique way to apply lipstick. It went viral not for the quirkiness but because she said that after applying the lipstick, she “rubs it off” because her then boyfriend and now husband – Ranbir Kapoor likes her natural lip colour and asks her to “wipe it off”, whenever they are out on a date night.
Netizens had gone crazy over this video, calling RK toxic and not respecting AB’s choice to wear makeup. I saw the video a couple of times to understand the reason behind the uproar but I failed to understand it. I read many comments and saw people saying that asking your partner or dictating terms on how they should wear makeup is a major sign to leave the person.
Modesty or humility is viewed as the hallmark of a well-brought-up girl, which makes it hard for us to be open to any real compliments without feeling like an imposter.
Why is accepting that compliment so hard?
Colleagues: Have you lost weight? You look good!
She (who has spent months doing Keto and weights): It’s the dress that’s making me look thinner!
Guests: Your house is so beautiful and neat!
She (who spent the last five hours mopping and polishing): It could be tidier; there is just so much dust.
